Now in her third year leading Fountain, Principal Horton said that despite notable changes within the world as well as the district, “We’ve managed to train global leaders and hopefully, impact this generation to go out and change the world for the better. That’s what I’m most proud of.” It’s Principal Horton’s hope that she is known to others as being “kind, gracious, always willing to learn, and that I was always there for them: especially the kiddos.”
